Just wondering if "brew install --cask emacs" installs Emacs for the M1 with the GUI.

According to the formula, the cask grabs the app from emacsformacosx.com. And their ‘about’ page says that ARM binaries are included starting with version 27.2-1, which is below the current version in the cask.

(I didn't verify the installation myself, however, due to not having an M1 Mac.)

Yes. It does. After installing the .dmg you may have to correct some of the symlinks yourself. (I did when I installed this past Fall, and I don't know if that's been addressed.)
